curating a life in love

When you step back to look at your life, what do you see? Where are you placing your efforts, your attention? I read a quote by William James a while back that said, “My experience is what I agree to attend to,” meaning: your life is made up of the things (the people, the places, the media, the hobbies) that you give your attention to, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

I am personally in the process of taking stock of what I put my efforts toward, where I place my attention. It’s opened my eyes so much to what I really value and what I waste my time on (read: the amount of time I spend on social media). But, it’s been truly therapeutic to step back from the day to day and then work to remove the things that don’t serve the kind of life I want to live and to add things that create what ultimately makes up my life.

As I witnessed Karen and Matt’s beautiful wedding celebration at Mountain Springs Lodge in Leavenworth, WA, I felt like I was seeing two very special people who really believe in the power of curating their life; of working diligently to include things (people, experiences) in their life that add value and purposely exclude the kinds of things that detract from that. In this way, they are very much an inspiration to the people in their lives. They are most definitely an inspiration to me. Karen and Matt, thank you for including me in your day. I couldn’t be happier for you!
